Welcome to St. Agnes’ Catholic Parish, Matraville
St. Agnes’ parish is a welcoming, supportive community of believers inspired by the life of Jesus. We are called to make Christ present in our parish, in our local community and in our world.
Our mission is to know Christ and to make him known; to be a community committed to discovering Christ present in each person through our ministry to each other, our service to the wider community, the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments, and our active concern for social justice.
Our parish has dedicated parishioners involved in a variety ministries, such as the catechist program providing religion classes to Catholic pupils in local public schools. St Vincent de Paul Society providing support to those in need. Extraordinary Ministers taking Holy Communion to those in hospital or those confined to their homes or nursing homes. Acolytes and musicians who assist the priest with our weekend Masses.
We are very blessed to have numerous other volunteers who help in so many different ways in our parish and we would welcome anyone who would like to join us in serving our parish family.
